ngon and week, after a long search, in apprehending a female called Charlotte Coleman, a cyprian, and late a resident of this city, who was not long since bound ofter to appear as a witness against certain parties charged with counterfeiting Confederate Treasury notes, and who, on the day not apart for the trial, turned up missing. The agent of the Government, deeming that the witness had been tampered with, set his wife to work to trace out her stopping place, and, after a long search, lit upon her in. Memphis. Combined with the address and skill necessary in so important an operation, there was a degree of assiduity displayed by officer Goodrick that may well merit commendation. The trial of the party against whom Charlotte Gilman was a principal witness, was postponed until the 8th a April,in the rather vain hope, as it seemed at the time, of securing her attendance.--Owing, however, to human ingenuity and perseverance, she is on hand, and likely to further the ends of justice.
C. S. District Court. --The Grand Jury of this Court yesterday indicted Charles Melton, mail carrier between Pittsylvania C. H. and Lynchburg, for stealing a draft from the mail on the 22d of March, and Wm. H. Crawford, alias Flem Razor, for passing a ten dollar counterfeit Confederate Treasury note on the bar-keeper of Jarratt's Hotel, in Petersburg, Va. The Grand Jury adjourned until twelve o'clock to-day, when they will proceed with the case of Geo. W. Elam, charged with an offence similar to that committed by Razor. The witness in the case, Charlotte Gilman, arrived from Memphis, Tenn, yesterday evening in custody of Detective Goodrich.
Sundries. --The Mayor's police made no arrests yesterday. The case of Joseph Bernard, for the murder of John O. Taylor, on appeal before the Supreme Court, was argued yesterday before a full bench.--The Grand Jury of the C. S. District Court will assemble to-day to examine the case of G. W. Elam, charged with passing counterfeit Treasury notes. The witness in his case, Charlotte Gilman alias Siffety, is in Castle Godwin.--The weather yesterday was a good type of spring, and the streets presented a very fair "map of busy life."

r hanging for 35 minutes he was pronounced dead, and the body being lowered, the rope was carefully removed and the body put in a coffin. The condemned in this case was about 30 years of age, and used to sell fruit from a basket around the city. His personal appearance was rather prepossessing than otherwise. It will be remembered that Geo. Elam was arrested as an accomplice of the above party, and has been in confinement for several months awaiting trial, and that a female named Charlotte Gilman, alias Siffety, has likewise been locked up for a long time as a witness against him. The notes counterfeited were stolen from the lithographic establishment of Hoyer & Ludwig, who were at work for the Government. Napoleon said in his confession that on the day the place was entered he met Elam on Pearl street. They went towards the market, taking two or three drinks on the way. "George" says to him, "Louis, we'll go and make some money." L. says, "Where are you going?" George rejoins,
Prison items. --Joseph Bradford and George H. Munford, members of Debney's Heavy Artillery, were committed to Castle Thunder yesterday to be tried by Court Martial, convened by order of Brig. Gen. Julius Daniels. On the same day was committed John O'Donohoe, for selling himself as a substitute and then deserting from his company. Wm. Patterson and Wm. Morris, company G, 15th Virginia regiment, were placed in confinement as deserters. There are several females in Castle Thunder, whose names are as follows: Mrs. Webster, Miss Underwood, Charlotte Gilman, (held as a witness,) Mrs. Jamison, of New York, and Mrs. Tabb, of Portsmouth, Va. Both of the latter are charged with being spies. Mrs. Jamison was arrested in the vicinity of Culpeper Court-House on horseback.
a search of several minutes the fugitive was discovered, and ordered to surrender, the demand being backed by several muskets pointed in the direction of his person. He acceded to the request, first remarking that had he not have dropped his pistol he could not have been taken alive. Being properly secured he was carried to the city jail, where no doubt efforts properly directed will restrain his future wandering propensities. As the members of company B, Only Battalion, were on guard at the jail the day Elam escaped, and got all the blame for permitting it by negligence, it is not only proper, but right, that they should have the credit of arresting him. It will be remembered that Elam's alleged accomplice, Louis Hapelson, was tried and hung. The chief witness against the prisoner (a loose female, known as Charlotte Gilman) was kept for many months in Castle Thunder in order to procure her attendance on the trial, but on the exit of Elam from the city jail she was turned loose.
To be removed. --Charlotte Gilman, the woman for some time past detained in Castle Thunder as a witness against George W. Elam, charged with counterfeiting Confederate Treasury notes, is to be removed to the county jail, orders having been issued to that effect.
oken into and robbed of $10,000 worth of goods, for which one man has been convicted and sent to the penitentiary. Sullivan, the convict, boarded at Sexton's, on 17th street, and visited the prisoner, who lived next door. This prisoner and Charlotte Gilman were presented with a piece of cloth by Sullivan, which they had made into cloaks, and which they afterwards got Eliza Sexton to conceal for them, fearing the Detectives would discover that portion of their apparel. Miss Sexton got another woman to conceal the cloaks for her, and thereby lost one of them. She also concealed other articles when the officers were searching her brother's house, and thus entangled herself-in the meshes of the law. Miss St. Clair proved by Miss Gilman that they did not know the goods were stolen when given to them. As she gave information to the police and testified against Sullivan, the Sextons threatened her with vengeance, and have thus brought on this prosecution. The secured was remanded for a
